Pub crawl in Chinatown

Walk around Chinatown town like a Brit by taking part in a pub crawl. This is the perfect opportunity for you to try the best pubs in the area by having a drink in one before moving on to the next. The name came from the idea that you begin the experience with a walk from one pub to another, and by the end of your experience, you might end up “crawling”.
